SE Asia Stocks-Down; Philippines hits near 6-mth closing low
Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Thursday, as investors remained cautious ahead of the U.S.
presidential election, with the Philippine index falling more than 1 percent to its lowest close in nearly six months.
Narrowing polls have led markets to price in more risk that Donald Trump might defeat his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
Investors generally view Clinton as a known quantity, but there is deep uncertainty about what a Trump win might mean for U.S. economic policy, free trade and geopolitics.
"Most fund managers are in a risk-off mood because of the uncertainty. They are trying to get out of equity," said Mikey Macainag, an analyst with Manila-based Sunsecurities Inc.
The Philippine index .PSI ended 1.3 percent lower, its ninth straight session of losses, dragged down by financials and
consumer staples. Conglomerate JG Summit Holdings Inc JGS.PS lost 2.7 percent.
Shares in Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp SHLPH.PS , the Philippine unit of Royal Dutch Shell PLC RDSa.L , edged up 0.3 percent at the close of trade after opening flat on debut Thursday. urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nP9N1BV00D

dragged down by energy stocks and consumer staples, with Adaro Energy Tbk PT ADRO.JK ending 4.7 percent lower.
Singapore Index .STI fell for a fifth straight session as telecom stocks declined.
Telecom service provider Starhub Ltd STAR.SI , the biggest loser on the Singapore index, reported a 27.6 percent fall in net profit for the third quarter.
